(November 2009) — Take the hassle out of the holidays and order a complete holiday dinner from your local PCC deli.

This Thanksgiving we’re offering traditional turkey dinners, a ham dinner, a vegetarian or vegan lasagna dinner, and for the first time, a vegan Field Roast dinner.

Our meals require only heating and serving and feature the healthy, fresh ingredients that are a hallmark of PCC.

All our meats are produced without artificial hormones or antibiotics — including free-range turkeys from Diestel and bone-in, spiral-sliced hams from Garrett County. Choose from a cheese or root vegetable lasagna, or a locally made cranberry hazelnut Field Roast en croute.

Our side dishes are made from scratch using old-fashioned recipes and only the best ingredients. Depending on the meal you choose, sides include roasted squash, steamed broccoli, maple-glazed carrots, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, rolls from Essential Bakery, apple-sage stuffing, and cranberry-orange relish. You won’t find artificial colors or flavors in our gravy, either.

For dessert you’ll enjoy one of our deep-dish fruit or pumpkin pies, made with a flaky, butter crust that’s irresistible.

For full details on each dinner and to place your order, visit our complete holiday guide or pick up a holiday meals brochure at any PCC store.

You will find that PCC holiday dinners make for a fantastic meal at a fantastic value.
